5k Training, Day 4
Today I changed up my intervals. The program I followed was a 5 minute warm up, then 60 second runs followed by 90 seconds walks. I was able to up my distance and my pace today, without even realizing I was moving faster. I sure am excited to... Read more
5k Training, Day 3
Today, I kept telling myself, "I can't believe I'm doing this!" But there I was....jogging down the street. I had to talk myself into even going out today. I was tired, and it was hot outside and I just didn't feel like doing anything. Inste... Read more
5k Training, Day 2
Well, come to find out, my husband told me the wrong date for this race. It's in June! I don't have as much time as I thought I did to get ready for this. But, that doesn't mean I'm going to slack off or quit. I'm a little more nervous about... Read more
5K Training, Day Off
No running today. But that's ok. I feel like I could do it, but know that I need to work up to any sort of distance. I have to build endurance and let my muscles get used to the idea that I'm doing something new.
Today, I've been amaze... Read more

Another small victory!
So, I already know that weekends are hard for me. I like to cook, so I'll make good meals for my husband and I, but then, throughout the day, I tend to find myself grazing. Well, this weekend was different! It was almost like a switch flipped... Read more
We had a church activity and a bbq. For the most part, I'm happy with my food choices, but I did sneak a couple of cookies in! That just means extra time at the gym tomorrow! And yes, the scale showed I had gained a few ounces, but the best t... Read more
